CAN THE Criminal Defense CA Firm HANDLE MY CASE?

We defend people accused of any crime both in state and federal court. We focus most of our attention on the Southern California area and more specifically in Los Angeles County. We know the Pasadena courts well and have successfully defended thousands of clients accused of a large variety of crimes. We represent clients accused of any crime including; driving under the influence or other traffic related offenses, simple drug possession, sex crimes including federal internet pornography cases, white collar offenses including embezzlement, real estate fraud and banking fraud, domestic violence cases, violence related offenses such as murder, manslaughter, robbery or assault with a deadly weapon. Often times, clients will come to us after someone has accused them of something or threatened to call the police on them. We represent these clients in a pre-file investigatory capacity. Here, our goal is to prevent criminal charges from ever being filed. This is often accomplished by speaking with the accusing party and negotiating a settlement or speaking with the investigating agency to steer them in a different direction. We also represent clients who have already been convicted and are facing a probation violation as well as a full post-conviction, writ and appeal practice.
